Building Consultancy

Property values protected. Tenant experiences enhanced.

To maintain and enhance a property’s value, it’s essential to understand its true condition. That’s where our building consultancy service can help as accurate information is vital when making leasing or development decisions.

Knight Frank’s world-class Building Consultancy team works closely with investors, landlords and tenants to deliver these insights. We expertly and objectively survey properties of all sizes and types, ranging from offices and hotels to industrial, retail, educational and institutional premises.

Saving by surveying

A detailed assessment of a building’s condition can also highlight whether upgrades are needed. If so, service charges can be adjusted in advance to cover these costs. Efficient tender programmes can also be triggered to ensure the most cost-effective suppliers are selected.

The Knight Frank difference

Being armed with expert insights strengthens your ability to negotiate, to protect investments and to identify opportunities. Trusting Knight Frank to deliver this information can add even more confidence – for some important reasons:

  • Our advice is guided by rigorous research combined with up-to-the minute surveying methods and an obsessive attention to detail.
  • There’s no room for lazy assumptions or out-of-date views. Instead, we consider current market expectations, existing and future legislation and how new innovations (such as smart technology) may change requirements.
  • We can assess properties against international standards by applying insights from Knight Frank’s global network.
